London – David Haye and Dereck Chisora will fight in London on July 14, five months after the brawl between the British heavyweights that led authorities to strip Chisora of his boxing license.

The fight at West Ham football club will be sanctioned by the Luxembourg Boxing Federation since the British Boxing Board of Control refused involvement because neither fighter has a license.

Haye relinquished his last year to retire following the loss of his WBA title to Wladimir Klitschko.

Chisora's manager, Frank Warren, says his fighter “will be out of action for six months and will lose money. Why should he not make a living?”
